The Worst Food Porn We've Seen All Month

Good food porn has the unique power to tantalize our taste buds and set our stomachs growling without ever coming off the page or the screen. An image of a stack of pancakes drizzled with syrup and topped with a pat of butter can make us feel like we've never wanted to eat anything other than pancakes in our whole lives. A great-looking bowl of steaming ramen can be enough to have us packing up our bags and running out the door to find noodles even if we just ate.

Bad food porn, unfortunately, is just as powerful. It's enough to make us never want to eat again. The Shitty Food Porn subreddit is a deep well upsetting and unsettling gems, and Cooking for Bae collects the worst of the worst on Instagram. With everyone and their mother Instagramming their food these days, however, cooking fails, culinary mishaps and all-around sh**ty photos aren't hard to find.

Here is some of the worst porn we've seen so far this month. If you don't want to ruin your appetite, now would be the time to turn away and find something else to read.

The idea that someone photographed this, let alone ate it, is just beyond us.

It's hard to make canned tuna look worse, but this may have just done the job.

This may be the most upsetting thing we've seen in a while. What is that cheese-like gunk?


This person clearly needs a lot of help.


Good luck with that.

No seriously, what IS it?


Okay, we've had enough. But don't worry. There will be more bad photos next month.
